The Honorable Elmer E, Robinson, Mayor 
The Board of Supervisors 
Mr. Harry D, Roas, Controller 
Officers, Boards, and Commissions 

Gentlemen: 

The City Planning Commission takes pleasure in submitting its annual 
Capital Improvement Program in compliance with Section 69.1 of the Charter. 
In the report will be found schedules of projects proposed by the various de- 
partments, agencies, and boards for the next fiscal year, 1955-56, which were 
reviewed by the Commission for conformity with the Master Plan. Projects pro- 
posed for the five subsequent years, 1956-57 through 1960-61 have not been 
reviewed but are included as part of the six-year program* 

This Ccanmission's review over projects proposed for the next fiscal 
year is limited to analysis of land use and location in relation to the Master 
Plan. Questions concerning priority of projects, type of financing to be used, 
postponements, or curtailments, we are leaving to the Mayor and to the Board 
of Supervisors to determine in their regular capital budget procedure. Depart- 
mental recommendations as to priorities and proposed financing are, however, 
shown in the schedules. 

Most projects were found to be in conformity with the Master Plan, and 
in a few cases, qualified approvals were given where coordination between de- 
partments and vd.th the Department of City Planning is necessary. 

One project, a Water Department corporation yard, had been previously 
found to be in conflict with the Master Plan. A hearing will soon be held as 
to whether the Master Plan should be amended to provide for this industrial 
activity in the location proposed. 

More and more we are finding that the City's departments and agencies 
are making effective use of this report for the information it contains, and 
as a means of stimulating their own long range planning capital budgeting, and 
coordination with plans of other departments. 

The Department of City Planning wishes to express its appreciation to 
all city officials and departments for their assistance and cooperation in the 
preparation of this report. 

Respectfully subaiitted.

THE CITY-WIDE LAND USE PLAN 

Seepage5 
A GUIDE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE CITY 

The City-Wide Land Use Plan, shown on the opposite page, is a basic element in the Mas- 
ter Plan of the City and County of San Francisco. Adopted by the City Planning Commission 
January 29, 1953, it is a long-range, city-vidde plan for private and public uses of the land 
areas of the city and is designed to guide and indicate the type of growth, developinents and 
improvements suitable to each area. 

The most striking feature of the plan is the division of the entire city into two main 
types of land areas. Working Areas and Living Areas. In the Working Areas are found the Down- 
town commercial, shopping, and financial activities, as well as industrial, warehouse, and 
shipping functions. The Living Areas are residential community areas, where non-residential 
activities are usually service facilities for the residents — shopping centers, hospitals, 
recreation centers, and so on. 

This Working Area-Living Area division is facilitated by San Francisco's topography, 
where hilly areas naturally attract residential development, and industrial plants and ware- 
houses are naturally grouped along the Bay shore, near main rail lines, highway entrances and 
pier facilities. With the prevailing westerly winds, this arrangement provides a natural anti- 
smog aid beneficial to the residential areas. 

Not only does the Land Use Plan indicate the different types of land uses, but it also 
shows varying intensities of the same type of use, and their distribution throughout the city. 
Whether an industrial district will have in the future predominantly heavy or light industry, 
or whether a residential area will have single-family homes or high-rise apartment towers is 
of vital importance to advance planners of public works who must draw up capacities for water 
reservoirs, sewage disposal plants, and pipe lines to serve the various districts. Locations 
of schools, libraries, playgrounds, and recreation centers also depend upon the anticipated 
population density. Proper planrdng can reduce chances of premature obsolesence caused by 
insufficient capacity. 

PROGRESS ON THE TRAFFICWAYS PLAN 

See peg e 7 
NEW FREEWAYS, "SKYWAYS" AND EXPRESSWAYS 

Closely related to the City-Wide Land Use Plan is the Trafficways Plan, shown on a 
following page. Adopted July 17, 1951 by the City Planning Commission, it is now beginning to 
take shape, in a rather spectacular manner, through projects being built by the City as well 
as others being constructed by the California State Division of Highways, Bayshore Freeway, a 
state project, now nearing completion for its entire length, is adding a new feature to the 
character of the city, 

A national art award was recently granted the State Division of Highways for the design 
of its "skjTvays" in the complex "over-and -under" pattern of viaducts at the junction of the 
Bayshore, Central, and Elnbacadero Freeways with the Bay Bridge in the South-of-Market area. 
The state engineers have opened up new vistas that can be seen by motorists from these new via- 
ducts, "a panorama of imposing city skyscrapers developing with breathtaking suddenness."^ 

Construction and right-of-way costs for the 6.4 miles of the Bayshore Freeway in San 
Francisco come to a total of approjdmately $39,832,000, of which over $20,000,000 were for 
acquisition of rights-of-way. Total length of structures is approximately 8.4 miles. San 
Franciscans using this artery can now report average daily time savings of from 10 to 25 
minutes per trip. Benefits have likewise accrued to users of thoroughfares formerly carrying 
traffic now using the freeways. The choking peak hour congestion is gone, and abutting prop- 
erty owners are benefiting from a chance of easier access and less noise.

A freeway loop surrounding the congested and ccanpact Central Business District of San 
Francisco will eventually result from projects now under way by the California State Division 
of Highways, under the direction of their District Office IV at 150 Oak Street in San Fran- 
cisco. 

The Bnbarcadero Freeway will provide an elevated highway from the Bay Bridge approach 
interchange at 4th and 5th Streets to Broadway and The Bnbarcadero. The engineers are giving 
careful attention to the design of the double-decked structure where it crosses Market Street 
In front of the historic Ferry Building, now being rebuilt into the World Trade Center. 

Around the Civic Center, another "elevated", the Central Freeway, will continue from 
its present terminus at 13th and Mission Streets to Turk and Franklin Streets. This artery 
will likewise be a double-decked viaduct, crossing Market Street. Eventually, the Central 
and the Sabarcadero Freeways will meet at Van Ness Avenue and Lombard Street to provide a com- 
plete loop. 

The "Southern Freeway" is a combination of parts of the "Mission Freeway" and the 
"Crosstown Freeway" as shown on the Trafficways Plan, The State has assumed jurisdiction over 
this route, and route location studies are now under way. From Junlpero Serra Freeway near 
the county line, this route extends along the old Southern Pacific right-of-way to a point 
near Monterey Boulevard, and the route of the Crosstown Freeway will then be followed to the 
vicinity of Alemany Boulevard and Mission Street, and from thence along Alemany to Bayshore 
Freeway. 

The City will construct the next section of the Southern Freeway, which will lead from 
Alemany and Bayshore across the Islals Creek area to form a connection with the projected 
Southern Crossing at Tennessee and 24th Streets. 

The "Western Freeway" will also be constructed by the Division of Highways, and sur^ 
veys and studies for route location are now under way. Incorporating the Junlpero Serra Free- 
way route and the Panhandle Freeway route as shown on the Trafficways Plan, along with a con- 
necting length of the Crosstown Freeway, this artery will provide a connection between the 
Lake Merced, West-of-Twln Peaks, and Sunset areas to the Civic Center and Downtown, as well 
as the fast-growing residential areas south of the cotinty line.

5 PRIORITY NUMBER 



Present thinking among State 
and City engineers is to alter the 
Panhandle route so that the attrac- 
tive and restful strip of open space 
in the Haight-Ashbury district pro- 
vided by the Park Panhandle will not 
be disturbed. 

Although a freeway connection 
across Golden Gate Park will eventu- 
ally be necessary, the Trafficways 
Plan shows this acccanpllshed by a 
tunnel, which is also the assumption 
being made by State engineers in 
their advanced planning. All con- 
cerned are anxious that whatever 
cross-park artery must eventually 
be built shall be laid out in a man- 
ner that will not result in an in- 
trusion of unwelcome noise and fumes 
into the tranquillity of the park 
atmosphere. By removing consider- 
able volumes of traffic frcai exist- 
ing park drives, the net effect of 
freeway construction should be bene- 
ficial to other park uses.

Besides the Southern Freeway section, the City vd-ll also construct the Crosstovm Free- 
way connecting the Western and Southern Freeways and following the O'Shaughnessy Canyon route 
frcm Laguna Honda Reservoir to Mission Street and Alemany Boulevard. The Geary Expressway, 
another city project, will not only break a traffic bottleneck between the Richmond district 
and Downtown, but is an essential feature of the Western Addition. Redevelopnent project. 

The Hunters Point Expressway is a long-range project to be undertaken when tidelands 
fill activity is inaugurated, providing more industrial land on the bay flats between Hunters 
Point and Candlestick Point. This route will provide a major truck entrance to the Hunters 
Point Naval Shipyard, as well as serving existing and new industrial areas.

CONSTRUCTION RECENTLY COMPLETED AND NOW UNDER WAI 

Last year (fiscal year 1953-54) projects costing $32,528,195 were co!i5)leted by San 
Francisco's departments, boards, and agencies. In addition, the Housing Authority spent 
$1,983,228 on public housing for low-inccxne families, and the Parking Authority constructed 
off-street parking garages and lots costing $3,048,500. 

Schools constituted the largest single item in the completed program. Ten new schools 
costing $10,491,682 were placed in service. Other sizeable amounts went for improvements to 
the International Airport ($7,776,351) and the city's water supply, power supply, and water 
storage and distribution systems ($6,986,869). 

This year (fiscal year 1954-55), projects under construction or to be placed under 
contract amount to $58,947,721, with public housing construction underway amounting to an 
additional $20,336,047, and off-street parking facilities accounting for $5,050,650 additional. 
Again schools and water supply are the most importcint item, with $19,449,375 committed to 
fifteen new school construction projects, and $16,799,157 being spent on the various systems 
of water supply, distribution, and storage. 

A comparison of past and present public works construction with the program proposed 
for 1955-56 and for the five subsequent year period, 1956-1961 in the Capital Improvement 
Program is shown below:

PUBLIC BUILDINGS AND THE CIVIC CENTER 



As in many previous annual Capital Improvement Program reports, we find in the follow- 
ing schedules of proposed projects many relating to the need for new public buildings and to 
questions affecting the Civic Center. This Canmission has several times recanmended a special 
appropriation for a site plan for the expansion and development of the Civic Center. In the 
spring of 1953, such a proposal was approved by the Board of Supervisors Committee on Public 
Buildings, Lands and City Planning, but failed to pass the Finance Committee. 

A team of architects, site planners structural and traffic engineers is now being 
chosen to draw up plans for the proposed $3,275,000 underground Exhibit Hall to be placed 
beneath the southern half of the Civic Center, and authorized by the voters in November of 
1954. 

A number of unresolved questions still remain concerning new public buildings 
in the Civic Center area, such as: 

1. Should the new miuiicipal building be an administration building with the 
present city hall being converted into a courts building? Studies are 
now being drawn up for these projects by the City Architect, but many 
judges still talk in terms of an entirely new courts building. 

2. Should the Civic Center Plaza underground garage be constructed at the 

same time as the Exhibit Hall eind related to it in design? 

3. Where should a new Federal office building be located? The Federal 
government plans to add a structure as big as their present office build- 
ing. 

4. Where should a police administration building be placed? The Police 
Department believes it should be in or near the Civic Center. 

5. Should the Department of Public Welfare be moved to the Civic Center 
when the Parking Authority takes over their building at 585 Bush Street 
for the Stockton-Bush Ramp Garage as planned? 

The present monumental and pleasant atmosphere of the existing Civic Center might well 
be lost for all time if a number of independent and unrelated public projects are undertaken 
without an overall plan for the Civic Center's development. An inefficient arrangement, an 
unworkable solution, and an unpleasant and unattractive atmosphere could easily arise with no 
plan for coordination of the varying elements which will make up the Civic Center as new 
structures are added.

PROGRESS ON THE FIREHOUSE PLAN 

With three new firehouses completed in 1953-54, and with six new stations under con- 
struction in 1954-55 and nine old stations being completely rehabilitated and reconstructed in 
line with modern reeds for structural strength in an earthquake-prone area, the Firehouse Plan, 
developed jointly by the Fire Department and the Department of City Planning, and adopted as a 
part of the Master Plan of San Francisco in October of 1952 is showing concrete results. 

The need for new facilities was first indicated in a survey undertaken in September of 
1951 by Mr. Harry Vensano, consulting engineer, which showed many structural deficiencies in 
existing fire stations. Some changes have recently been proposed in the comprehensive fire- 
house location plan by the Fire Commission, since detailed architectural studies have shown a 
number of stations that could econcmically be reconstructed, instead of replacing them with 
entirely new stations. A proposed amendment to the Firehouse Location Plan of the Comniunity 
Facilities Section of the Master Plan is now being reviewed by the Fire Department and will 
soon be submitted for the consideration of the City Planning Commission. 

With over $2,000,000 having been spent or obligated, the program has about reached the 
half-way mark.

A POLICE ADMINISTRATION BUIIDING 

Since 1949 the Police Department has annually submitted a proposal for new quarters 
for police administration activities. In 1949 and 1950 a $6,000,000 project for the complete 
remodeling and reconstruction of the Hall of Justice at its present site at Kearny and Washing- 
ton Streets was proposed, but a proposed bond issue to finance this project did not receive 
the necessary two-thirds majority vote of the electorate. 

Current Police Department thinking is directed toward construction of an entirely new 
police administration building, incorporating the most modern features and technical facili- 
ties, such as laboratories, communications, and equipment for administration and crime detec- 
tion. Related activities, such as the District Attorney's office and the Coroner would also 
be located in the building. 

No specific site is proposed by the Police Department, although in the past they have 
shown interest in having it located in tar near the Civic Center, so that easier communication 
with other city departments, and with the Mayor and the Board of Supervisors could be estab- 
lished without the crosstown trip now necessary from the Kearny Street location.

RECREATION PROGRESS: COMPLETION OF THE "MASTER PLAN FOR YOUTH" 

Only a few hundred thousand dollars of the $12,000,000 1947 Recreation Bond Fund 
remain unspent or unobligated. All over San Francisco modem new field houses, gymnasia, 
and improved and new playground and playfield facilities give visible evidence of the pro- 
gress already achieved. This program was popularized, during the campaign to obtain voter 
approval of the bonds in 1947 as the most important part of a "Master Plan for Youth" which 
also involved bond funds for the new Juvenile Home, by citizens groups such as the Junior 
Chamber of Camnerce. 

During 1953-54, H recreation projects were completed, and 17 are underway during the 
current fiscal year, 1954-55. Included in this are 9 large recreation centers in which will 
be found field houses, meeting rooms for hobby and youth groups, locker rooms, and, in some 
cases, gymnasia. In Duboce Park, a Central Activities Building is being completed, in which 
will be found space for hobby and model activities, drama and dance groups, and other city- 
wide recreational activities. Phelan Beach improvements, near Lands End, and improvements to 
Camp Mather, the city' s summer recreational center in the High Sierras will also soon be 
finished. 

Future projects not included in the 1947 Bond Fund program include recrestion centers 
designed to serve the Western Addition and Diamond Heights redevelopment areas, which had not 
come into existence at the time the 1947 program was made out.

NEW PARKS FOR SAN FRAi\iCISC0 

A bond issue of $9,585,600 will be proposed during the fiscal year 1955-56 by the 
Recreation and Park Department, $6,012,600 of which would be to finance major improvements to 
San Francisco's park system. The balance, $3,573,0'30 would be for swimming pools, recreation 
centers, and redevelopment area projects which were not included in the 1947 Recreation Bond 
Fund program, 

McLaren Park will be developed into a usable park area sometime during the five year 
period from 1956 through 1961, at an estimated cost of $2,500,000. Construction of park drives 
will be undertaken in addition to this, and financed out of gas tax funds and are shown as pro- 
jects in the Trafficways section of this report. First proposed for development in 1928, 
McLaren Park's improvement, to be financed by bond issue, failed of approval by the electorate 
at that time. Park boundaries were established by the Board of Supervisors, and individual 
parcels were purchased by the City for the park, lot by lot, from budget funds. In 1953 the 
Board redefined the park area and appropriated sufficient funds to obtain the remaining pri- 
vately-owned lots within the new boundaries. 

In 1954 the staff of the Department of City Planning completed a preliminary site plan 
for the development of McLaren Park, showing general plan for roads, paths, recreation areas, 
picnic areas, swimming pools, and the like. This is now being studied by the Recreation and 
Park Department, and is being used as a basis for plan development, 

A $5,000,000 expansion of the Marina Small Boat Harbor along the Marina Esplanade will 
be partially financed by the new parks bond issue, part of the funds to be sought from state 
tidelands oil shoreline and parks improvement funds, or from U, S. Army Corps of Engineers 
small boat harbor funds. This would about triple the capacity of the present small boat faci- 
lify, adding 53 acres to its area. 

Other major improvements planned for San Francisco's park system include development 
of Russian Hill Park ($38,500), Rehabilitation and development of Sutro Heights near Seal Rocks 
($235,100), improvements to Fleischhacker Pool ($437,500), and to the Zoo ($180,300).

PROGRESS ON A PLAN FOR PUBLIC LIBRARIES IN SAN FRANCISCO 



A Report on a Plan for the Location of Public Libraries In San Francisco was drawn 
up by the Department of City Planning, with the aid of Library Department staff, for the 
Public Library Commission in April of 1953, proposing 14 new branch libraries to be added to 
the city's existing 9 branch libraries, and in sane cases replacing obsolete facilities or 
poorly-located rented quarters. On April 30, 1953, the City Planning Commission adopted this 
plan as a part of the Community Facilities Section of the Master Plan of San Francisco. 

A bond issue program of $1,894,000 was presented for approval of the voters in Novem- 
ber of 1953, based on this plan, and failed to obtain a two-thirds majority. Dlsplte this 
set-back, the Public Library Department has been able to make progress on the branch libraries 
program through annual budget appropriations. 

The Marina Branch Library, located In the block containing Funston Playground opened 
in July of 1954, and provides an attractive h<ane-llke, restful place that matches the success- 
ful modern design of the Parkside Branch Library, which has attracted national attention in 
architectural circles. 

Under contract is the West Sunset Branch library located in the Sunset CcHnmunity Cen- 
ter, which will help to make a true camnunlty center of this "campus" of recreational, educa- 
tional, and civic facilities. Three branch libraries. North Beach, Bay View, and Excelsior 
are proposed for the next fiscal year, 1955-56, at a cost of $727,250, and for the five sub- 
sequent year program, 1956 through 1961, ten branch libraries are proposed to be financed by 
annual budget funds totaling $1,265,200,

SAN FRANCISCO'S MUSEUMS 

During 1953-54 an addition to the central wing of the M. H. de Young Memorial Museum 
was completed at a cost of $225,000 to provide additional storage space, space for collections 
which must now be kept in inaccessible places, and additional gallery space. Proposed im- 
provements for the future include provision of additional space in the Museimi Tower for space 
in which to work on the museum's priceless collections, and extensive reconstruction of the 
skylights and roof to prevent existing leakage which is & hazard to its high-value art pieces. 

A project for $762,135 for complete rehabilitation of pipes and tanks in the Steinhart 
Aquarium is proposed because of extensive deterioriation of existing equipment due to thirty 
years' action of salt water.

THE STREET CAR TRACK REMOVAL PROGRAM 

San Francisco's large scale program of street car track removal and repavement is 
nearing completion. From a city where almost every street had a car line on it, we will 
eventually beccme a city with only cable cars and the "tunnel" car lines on Market Street. 
During 1953-54, $2,388,500 was expended on track removal projects, important examples of 
which are car lines on Turk and Eddy Streets (#31 car line), the Union ("E") Street car line, 
the Van Ness-Potrero ("H") car line, and "F" car line tracks on Fourth Street. 

Tearing up of tracks on Stockton Street, Columbus Avenue, North Point Street and 
Chestnut Street on the remainder of the "F" line route will be a major capital improvement 
project for 1955-56, 

With voter approval, expressed in two elections, of "Proposition E", the plan for 
consolidation of cable car operations into three lines, Powell-North Beach, Powell-Hyde, and 
California Street from Van Ness to Market Street, removal of cable car tracks on routes 
abandoned will be undertaken late in the current fiscal year, 1954-55. Removal of rails and 
repaving will be undertaken on O'Farrell, Jones, and Pine Streets, and on California Street 
from Van Ness to Presidio Avenue. New switches, turns, turntables, and cable channels will 
be financed by the Municipal Railway. /

PROGRESS ON THE SEWERS PROGRAM 



Collection systems related to the Southeast Sewage Treatment Plant and the North Point 
Treatment Plant are still under construction, and $4,480,000 of bond funds will be spent for 
this purpose from 1955-56 through 1960-61. Minor improvements to the disposal plants are also 
planned ($481,000). 

The revocation of a long-standing prohibition of swimming at Aquatic Park is a drama- 
tic illustration of the improvement in the waters of San Francisco Bay brought about by opera- 
tion of San Francisco's modern facilities for sewage treatment. A by-product benefit is the 
production of safe and high-powered fertilizer frcm the effluent residue, usfid for the city's 
parks and sold at low cost to takers at the Southeast Treatment Plant. 

Approval by the voters in J\ine of 1954 of #12,000,000 worth of bonds for improvements 
to the city's sewage collection and disposal system has given the Department of Public Works 
the go-ahead signal on projects designed to bring to modern standards many old, obsolete, and 
inadequate sections of sewer line. Over $4,000,000 will be spent on replacements of inadequate 
lines, cind lesser amounts will be spent for new lines to serve recently-built-up areas 
($490,000), to serve industrial areas ($550,000), to extend outfalls to permit tideland fil- 
ling ($1,007,000), and to rebuild sewers where major street or thoroughfare construction or 
reconstruction is taking place ($977,000).

REHABILITATION OF SAN FRANCISCO'S PUBLIC HEALTH FACILITIES 



For several years serious concern has been felt by city and state health officials over 
inadequate appropriations made for the proper maintenance of San Francisco Hospital and Laguna 
Honda Home. Surveys indicated immediate need of considerable expenditures for deferred mainte- 
nance items to bring these two important health facilities up to proper standards. In addition 
various improvements were needed, such as additional elevators, connecting upper-story corri- 
dors between wings, rearrangements of facilities such as kitchens, offices, and wards for more 
efficient operation. 

In November of 1954 an overwhelming endorsement of funds to correct these deficiencies 
was given by San Francisco's voters authorizing the expenditure of $5,830,000 in the San Fran- 
cisco Hospital Bond Fund and $5,475,000 in the Laguna Honda Home and Hospital Bond Fund for 
this deferred maintenance and planned improvements. 

During the current fiscal year, $1,403,120 of these funds has already been obligated 
for work now being let out for contract. An emergency replacement of a heating boiler was 
necessary in September of 1954 at Laguna Honda Heme ($187,000), and in March, 1955 work will 
be gotten under way on ronodeling the kitchen and bakery, installation of fire doors, installa- 
tion of a fire alarm system, and replacement of another boiler, a total of $719,820. 

Most pressing needs will also be met during the current year at San Francisco Hospital, 
where $683,300 worth of work will get under way in June of 1955, including modernization of 
kitchens, nurseries, surgical wards, physiotherapy rooms, elevators, and remodeling and chang- 
ing around of a number of service facilities, as well as general deferred maintenance items. 

Most important feature of the work at Laguna Honda Home is the conversion of ambulatory 
wards into hospital wards to provide space for hospital care of chronically ill elderly people 
who must now be cared for at San Francisco Hospital, 

In San Francisco Hospital, all of the ward buildings are scheduled for complete 
modernization.

SAN FRANCISCO'S NEW INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT 



In August of 1954 the new jjassenger terminal building of San Francisco International 
Airport was opened to the public in a three-day celebration and air fete. Costing almost 
$7jOOO,000 to construct, this modern attractively-designed structure is the center of improve- 
ments (concourse structures, utilities, roads, street lighting, parking areas) >rtiich together 
with the terminal, total over $9,600,000 in cost. Since its establishment in 1928, over 
$50,000,000 has been spent on San Francisco's airport. For the fiscal year 1955-56 it is 
estimated that the airport will earn $2,500,000 in revenues. 

During 1953-54, $7>776,351 worth of construction was completed on the airport project, 
and during the current year $4,674j624 will be completed or under way. Only $600,000 is pro- 
posed for expenditure during the period 1955-56 through 1960-61. 

Planning for future airjxjrt expansion, however, is going ahead, and specific improve- 
ment projects in addition to the $600,000 in the Capital Improvement Program may be forthcom- 
ing when projects and estimates have taken more definite form. Two additional concourses 
(or unloading docks) at the terminal building, and two new 10,000 ft. runways are now on the 
drawing boards. The runways would accommodate new type turbo-prop transport planes vrtiich are 
expected to be in service in the future, and would have to be built in filled land now 
occupied by shallow bay water. 

An "airport village" complete with high-class restaurant, cocktail lounge, coffee shop, 
gift, flower, barber and beauty shops, nurseries and a movie theater is growing up at the 
terminal as concessions are authorized. Also being considered are a small hotel, shopping 
center, and church. Inccane from these concessions is an important source of airport income, 
as is ground rent for airlines' maintenance buildings, cargo sheds, and hangers. 

At present about two and one-half million passengers per year make use of the passen- 
ger terminal, which has a capacity for approximately five million passengers per year. About 
9,000 persons are employed at the airport, or by airlines and related facilities, with an 
annual payroll of about $50,000,000.

MORE WATER AND POWER FOR SAN FRANCISCO 



San Francisco's two agencies in the Public Utilities Commission concerned vd.th water 
and power supply, the Hetch Hetchy Water and Power Supply System, and the San Francisco Water 
Department, are both involved in multi-million dollar projects designed to increase water sup- 
ply and distribution facilities in San Francisco, and to provide additional water supply and 
aqueduct capacity from High Sierra sources to San Francisco and Peninsula communities supplied 
frcm the Hetch Hetchy system. 

The Public Utilities Commission now expects to propose, sometime in the next five 
years, a $100,000,000 bond issue to finance a number of features Involved in the expansion of 
Hetch Hetchy dam, aqueduct, and power production facilities. About $40,000,000 is not 
expected to be spent until after 1961. Major projects Involved are: 

(1) Cherry Valley Dam ($35,000,000, $12,594,370 already spent or committed); 

A 320 ft. high 6arth and rock dam, 2,600 ft. long, near the existing 
O'Shaughnessy Dam in Hetch Hetchy Valley, Yosemlte National Park. Pro- 
ject includes 36,000 ft. long diversion tunnels and power facilities. 
This will produce $2,500,000 worth of power annually. 

(2) Power House Number 2, Early Intake ($30,100,000) with diversion dam, 

pressure tunnel penstock and power house. Expected annual power reve- 
nue: $2,700,000. 

(3) San Joaquin Pipe Line Number 3 ($17*500,000) to parallel present aqueduct 

from Oakdale to Tesla portal. Will Increase capacity by 90,000,000 
gallons daily. 

(4) Coast Range South Tunnel ($40,000,000), a 10.5 ft. diameter tunnel, 29.1 

miles long from Tesla Portal near Tracy to Irvington Portal near Mis- 
sion San Jose. This project will not be done until after 1961, and 
will parallel present tunnels. 

The San Francisco Water Department is also planning multlHnillion dollar projects to 
increase San Francisco's water supplies and flow from the Crystal Springs and Calaveras 
reservoirs in San Mateo and Alameda Counties where Hetch Hetchy and local springs waters are 
stored. Major projects include: 

(1) Sunset Supply line: $2,634,000 worth of construction completed; $2,170,000 

under contract or budgeted for next fiscal year. 

(2) Crystal Springs Pipeline: $6,960,000, of which $3,200,000 will be spent 

after 1961. 

(3) Bay Division Pipeline #4 (connecting with new Hetch Hetchy aqueduct and 

Coast Range Tunnel): $14,000,000, of which $13,500,000 will be spent 
after 1961.

Bryant St. 

As previously reported (See Capital Improvement Program, 
January 1950, when same project was submitted): 

"This project, as submitted, is not in conformity with the 
master plan. Present facilities which this project would 
replace are inadequate. However, the proposed use is 
industrial in character, but the proposed location is in 
a residential community. Access to the site is available 
only via fully developed residential streets; industrial 
traffic and industrial uses would not be in harmony with 
the sxirrounding development. It is recommended that a 
new site be acquired in the industrial area of the city. 
The Department of City Planning offers its full aid in an 
endeavor to properly locate this project so that it will 
be in conformity with the master plan." 

NOTE: A public hearing was held on February 10, 1955 by the City 
Planning Commission as to whether or not the Master Plan 
should be amended to change the designated land use of the 
city-owned land in the University Mound Reservoir area to 
include such industrial type uses as the proposed corpora- 
tion yard. The proposal was disapproved by the City Plan- 
ning Commission,

*NOTE: Parking Authority proposes to finance bond interest and 
redemption frcxn revenues from completed off-street park- 
ing facilities, and it is hoped that parking meter reve- 
nues might also be used to finance these new off-street 
facilities (assuming appropriate ordinance may be passed 
by the Board of Supervisors). The issuance of revenue 
bonds instead of general obligation bonds, may also be 
considered by the Authority, 

Some of the estimated construction cost of these garages 
may be borne by lessees through individual arrangements. 

The projects are designed to be self-supporting and not 
tax-financed.

5. Civic Center Plaza Garage. Undergroiond ramp 3,764,000n* 

garage with approximately 1,000 parking

This project should be related to a plan for overall 
development and expansion of the Civic Center. 

*NOTE: Parking Authority recommends that this facility be con- 
structed at the same time as the proposed Exhibit Hall 
planned for the southerly half of the Civic Center Plaza, 
with design allowing use of Exhibit Hall for overflow 
parking upon occasion, and allowing easy conversion of 
the Exhibit Hall into an annex to the Civic Center Plaza 
Garage in case a new Convention Hall were later built at 
another location.

REDEVELOPMENT 



REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY 



REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY OF THE CITY AND COUNTY OF SAN FRANCISCO 



The Current Redevelopment Program: 

Commencement of land acquisition is now expected early in 1955 for the Western Addi- 
tion (Geary Rebuilding Area) Redevelopment Project and the Diamond Heights Redevelopment Pro- 
ject. The upholding of the constitutionality of the California Community Redevelopment Law by 
the Appelate Court of the State of California and the Supreme Court of the United States has 
removed the last barrier to the action phase of San Francisco's redevelopment program. 

Final project plans for both projects are now being reviewed by the Division of Slum 
Clearance and Urban Redevelopnent of the U. S. Housing and Home Finance Agency. When approved, 
they will be given final review by the City Planning CcHnmission and submitted to the Board of 
Supervisors for final adoption. 

Western Addition (Geary Rebuilding Area) Project: 

More than 2,000 substandard dwelling units will be eliminated in this 20-block pro- 
ject. Land will be bought and cleared by the Redevelopment Agency at an estimated cost of 
$14,597,000, and sold to private builders and investors, with sale proceeds expected to be 
$10,000,000. A Federal capital grant of $7,250,000 will cover the loss on land transactions. 
Medium and high density residential construction will be erected on the cleared land in accord- 
ance with the project plan and restrictions established by the Agency, It is expected that the 
2800 new dwelling units will cost in the neighborhood of $30,000,000. The city's contribution 
to the project will be in the neighborhood of $3,800,000 and will consist of "non-cash grants- 
in-aid" credits for construction of public facilities for the project, such as schools, recrea- 
tion centers, firehouses, sewers, streets, street lighting, water pipes, and the like. 

Diamond Heights Project: 

Consisting of 325 acres of predominantly open land southwest of Twin Peaks near the 
geographic center of the city, development of the Diamond Heights Project Area has been 
arrested by a gridiron street pattern unsuited to the steep terredn. The redevelopment plan 
provides for new streets and building sites that fit the contours and allow full use of hill- 
side view lots. Private capital will build 2,300 new dwelling units and a shopping center cost- 
ing a total of $30,000,000, and increasing annual tax revenue hy $400,000. Resale of land will 
pay $5,864,000 of the Federal loan estimated at $6,286,507, and a Federal capital grant of 
$422,507 will cover the balance. The City's contribution will include new parks, school, 
library, and firehouse. When ccxnpleted this project will be one of the city's best-designed 
and most attractive residential districts. 

South of Market Redevelopment Area: 

Predominantly industrial in character, this 19-block area, bounded roughly by Mission, 
Brannan, 2nd, and 9th Streets has pockets of blighted housing (mostly fronting on alleys) whose 
proximity to industrial plants reduces the possibility of their ever being made suitable for 
good family living. Present studies propose replacement of substandard housing by new indus- 
trial plants. In cas* there is insufficient demolition of substandard housing for this area to 
qualify for a Federal loan or grant, local financing might be made use of. A recent amendment 
to the California Community Redevelopment Law allows the use of increased tax revenues derived 
from assessments on project improvanents to help retire the cost of the redevelopment project.

SAN FRANCISCO'S LOW-RENT PUBLIC HOUSING 

An important feature of San Francisco's public housing program now under construction, 
is that it should provide one of the most important sources of housing to which persons dis- 
placed by the Western Addition Redevelopment Project could be moved. With 6O8 dwelling units 
to be available In December of 1955, and 150 more units available some time later in the 
Francisco Plaza and Francisco Plaza Annex projects, considerable accommodations could be pro- 
vided to families displaced by the slum clearance activities who could not afford higher rent 
housing, and who must, in accordance with the provisions of the California Community Redevelop- 
ment Act, be provided with housing equivalent to or better than that from which they are being 
evicted. 

The Francisco Plaza projects should also provide an attractive neighborhood environ- 
ment bordering the redevelopnent project, enhancing its value. 



THE VALUE OF CITY PLANNING 

City Planning is a greatly misunderstood function of the Municipal Government. Many 
seem to regard it as a vague and visionary abstraction contrived by theorists and of no prac- 
tical use. It should not be so regarded. 

In its modei*n concept. City Planning is the application of sound judgment and fore- 
thought to the solution of both the every day and long range community problems that arise 
from ordinary growth and from changing conditions and requirements. 

It should have the active interest of every citizen and taxpayer ... By the practical 
aid it gives towards the sound use and developnent of land, and the protection of real estate 
values. City Planning helps conserve the City's chief taxable resource. 

It helps improve the physical pattern, appearance and functional efficiency of the 
City, It provides a sound basis for coordinating and programming the City's public improve- 
ment projects. It helps guide the efficient and economical application of the City's capital 
budget funds. 

Effective City Planning thus serves the Municipal Government as well as all people and 
all interests in the Baltimore community — those of the individual citizen and of the small 
homeowner and neighborhood business equally with the large interests of industry and commerce,

The Honorable George Christopher, Mayor

Mr. Harry D. Ross, Controller 
Officers, Boards, and Coninissions 

G-entlemen: 

In compliance with Section 69.1 of the Charter, we are submitting the annual 
Capital Improvement ■ Program, in which will be found schedules of projects proposed 
by the various departments, agencies, and boards for the next fiscal year, 1956-57> 
which were reviewed for conformity with the Master Plan. Projects proposed for the 
five subsequent years, 1957-58 through 1961-62, have not been reviewed, but are in- 
cluded as a part of the six-year program. 

It should be noted here that City Planning Commission revie\-\r of proposed 1956- 
57 projects took place prior to the time that the five incumbent appointive members 
of this Commission took office on January 8, 1956, 

No project reviewed this year was found to be in conflict v/ith the Master Plan 
Qualified approvals were given some projects where the Commission recommended that 
further study be given particular considerations, or is requiring interdepartment 
coordination, or City Planning Commission approval of plans or site plans finally 
drawn up. 

Nutnerous projects concerned vri.th minor improvements and bettenrients of public 
buildings were submitted for review, which, in previous years, had not been consid- 
ered to be subject to capital im.provement review. Most of these were found by the 
Commission to be in a category that "Does Not Affect the Master Plan." Discussions 
are proceeding between the staff of this Department and officials of other depart- 
ments concerned as to the possibility of adopting definitions of "capital improve- 
ments" that would not include projects involving minor additions, interior altera- 
tions, additions to furnishings, equipment, mechanical, sanitary, or electrical in- 
stallations which have little or no effect on the life or basic structure of the 
building or improvement involved, and do not involve any basic change in the use to 
which the structure is to be put. 

The Department of City Planning wishes to express its appreciation to all city 
officials and departments participating in this program, for their assistance and 
cooperation in the preparation of this report. 



Respectfully submitted, 

Roger E^p^am, Jr., Prfesillent

THE CAPITAL Il-iPROVEI-iEI\iT PROGRAl^I AND THE MSTER PLAN 

Public and private construction in San Francisco has, since 1945^ been '^uided by the Master 
Plan of the City and County and its three sections, the Land Use Section, the Transportation Sec- 
tion and the Public Facilities Section. 

Although San Francisco is already heavily built up and densely settled, opportunities for 
change exist in the normal construction turnover. Every ten years, about one-quarter of the city's 
structures are subject to major alterations, or are even torn dovm entirely and replaced with new 
structures. Thus, it is possible for the city to have an entirely new face, if this turnover is 
properly q:uided and controlled. 

The Master Plan itself does not provide controls for shaping the face of the city. Ordi- 
nances and programs based upon it provide the machinery for guidance. The zoning ordinance, for 
instance, regulates private construction. It insures that proper land uses (residence, commerce, 
industry) are in proper districts. It also insures that structural oheracteristics (building bulk, 
lot coverage, yard spaces required, parking and loading spaces required) are such that the blighted 
areas of the future are not -built. 

Carrying Out the Land Use Plan 

The City-Wide Land Use Plan, shovm on the opposite page, and adopted as a part of the Master 
Plan in 1953^ is the basis for the revised comprehensive zoning ordinance nov; being reviewed by the 
Board of Supervisors. When adopted, this new ordinance will provide a positive means of translating 
the Master Plan into private development plans. 

Urban redevelopment projects, described below in the Capital Improvement Program schedules, 
are another means of carrying out provisions of the city's Master Plan. Whole sections of the city's 
blighted areas can be torn down and replaced by modern construction designed to contribute to the 
city's health and welfare. Project designs are required to conform to the Master Plan. 

Carrying Out the Public Facilities Plan 

Public construction projects are guided by City Planning Commission review of all cspital im- 
provement projects and the annual Capital Improvement Program required under Section 69.1 of the 
Charter. Expenditures, ordinances or actions affecting the lands, buildings, parks, streets, trans- 
portation routes and other facilities of the city must also be reviewed by the City Planning Commis- 
sion for conformity with the Master Plan under Section 116.1 of the Charter. 

In the schedules of construction projects proposed in this Capital Improvement Program can be 
seen the way in which city-wide general plans for development of community facilities are carried 
out. These plans, adopted as parts of the Public Facilities Section of the Master Plan, are being 
translated from plan to reality. 

The adopted Firehouse and Library Location Plans have guided the departments concerned in 
finding sites for projects scheduled in the folloiiri.ng pages. A Park and Recreation Plan has been 
developed by the Department of City Planning in cooperation with the Recreation and Park Department. 
This plan awaits public hearings and approval of the City Planning Commission for adoption. A coop- 
eratively-developed general plan for comiaunity public health centers likewise awaits hearing and 
commission adoption. 

Other city-wide plans are likewise being developed, including plans for school location, 
police facilities, water storage and distribution, sewage systems, public building locations, tran- 
sit, parking, and special area studies, such as a plan for the development of the Civic Center, and 
a plan for the area now occupied by the wholesale produce market, soon to be moved to South Basin, 

Carrying Out the Transportation Plan 

Most noticeable changes on the face of San Francisco apparent to a visitor returning to the 
city after an absence of 15 years are those made by freeway projects. The Trafficways Plan, shown 
on a following page, was adopted as an amendment to the Master Plan in 1951 (having been amended in 
a minor way in 1955). Based on an intensive survey conducted by four city departments in 1947 and 
1948 (Planning, Public Works, Public Utilities and Police) with a team of engineering and planning 
consultants, this plan has been basically followed in the multi-million dollar construction program 
undertaken since then by the City Department of Public VJorks, and the California State Department 
of Public Works, Division of Highways in the building of freeways, expressways and major thorough- 
fares.

The Freeway and Expressway Network 

A network of fast-traffic grade-separated specialized routes for autos, trucks and buses 
will take shape in the carrying out of City and State construction programs. More than 37 miles 
of route will cost about $295,091,000 (land acquisition cost: $110,640,000). This sirni exceeds the 
combined cost of all other proposed city-financed public improvements contained in the Capital Im- 
provement Program, which amounts to $280,252,150. 



The State will construct 27.2 miles of freeways on the State Highway System, present plans 
indicating the' eventual total cost will be $264,241,000 (land acquisition cost: $100,200,000). 
Completed construction (James lick Memorial Freeway and sections of the Qnbarcadero and Central 
Freeways) has cost $42,772,000. Under construction or budgeted for the fiscal year 1956-57 are 
projects amounting to $52,199,000. Projects in survej^ and planning stage, or planned for construc- 
tion after June, 1957, might cost as much as $174,300,000. 

The City's freev/ay and expressway construction program involves about 10 miles of route, and 
expenditures of $28,675,000, of which $3,200,000 would be spent after July, 1962. Rights-of-way 
would cost $10,440,000. 



Rapid Transit 



Extensive recommendations were made in the November, 1948 Transportation Survey for 
rapid mass transit facilities within San Francisco. Refinements of these proposals were contained 
in a supplemental report issued by the Department of City Planning in April, 1950. 

The Board of Supervisors in 1955 authorized a special survey to integrate proposals for 
rapid mass transit within San Francisco with the proposed Bay Area interurban rapid transit system 
made public in January, 1956. This plan, developed by engineering consultants for the San Fran- 
cisco Bay Area Rapid Transit Commission, would connect San Francisco and Oakland with suburban 
points in the East Bay, North Bay and Peninsula areas v/ith a high-speed interurban train service. 
The San Francisco survey will be undertaken as a joint project of the Departments of City Planning 
and Public Works, and the Public Utilities Commission. 




FREEWAY PROGRAM

James Lick Memorial (Bayshore) Freeway 

Except for a one-mile stretch from Third 
and Hester Streets to the County Line, San 
Francisco portions of this high-speed artery 
are now completed and in service. 

A direct freeway connection with the 
Financial District is being provided by the 
viaduct from Fourth Street to Mission, Main 
and Beale Streets, now under construction. 

Visitors, commuters and shoppers are 
provided a panorama of San Francisco's sky- 
line, as rfell as an impressive view of the 
pattern of over-and-under interchange via- 
ducts sorting out various traffic streams. 

San Francisco's surface streets are 
freer of congestion, as through traffic is 
attracted to the freeways. Since Lick Free- 
way has been opened, traffic on Third Street 
has dropped from 33,885 vehicles per 24 hours 
to 21,500. On Potrero Avenue, the reduction 
has been from 30,698 to 9^068 vehicles. 



Freeway-express buses have been established by the San Francisco Municipal Railway, giving 
transit passengers in the Parkmerced, Crocker-Amazon, Outer Mission and Visitacion Valley districts 
the advantages of the freeway's fast-traffic characteristics. Running times have been greatly re- 
duced and the services have proved popular.

THE PROPOSED CAPITAL IMPROVB'iEI.T PROGRAl'^ 

A total of $308,719,750 has been proposed by departments, boards and afjencies of the City 
and County in the current Capital Improvement Proq;rain for the six-year period 1956-57 throuf;h 1961- 
62 and beyond. Durinr^ 1956-57, projects totalin?^ $52,793,030 would be scheduled, while in the five 
subsequent years, $194,947,220 is proposed for expenditure. Projects expected to cost $60,979,450 
are planned for construction after June 30, 1962. 

The Hetch Hetchy Water and Power Supply System proposed the lf^rp;est sin'^le prof^ram, esti- 
mated to cost about $152,311,505. Voter-approved bonds endorsed by San Francisco's electorate in 
November, 1955, I'ri.ll finance $47,800,000 of these improvements. A future bond issue of 560,000,000 
will be proposed by the P^ablic Utilities Commission to pay for new dams, diversion tunnfels, aque- 
ducts, ao.ueduct tunnels and other facilities to increase Hetch Hetchy storage and transmission 
capacity to meet increased v/ater and power needs of San Francisco and its Peninsula neif^hbors. Capi- 
tal costs will be defrayed through receipts from sale of water and power. 

Freeways and expressways constructed by the city will account for over $28,000,000 of the 
Capital Improvement Program expenditures. Allocations from the State Motor Vehicle Fuel Fund to 
cities and counties will finance most of the program, alonr^ with a $6,000,000 proposed freeway bond 
issue. 

Sewer improvements amounting to $10,558,400 will be financed mainly from the 1954 Sev/er 
Bond Fund. Sewage collector systems takin^; effluent to the new sewat^e treatment plants at Morth 
Point and Islais Creek, sewer extensions to serve new residential and industrial areas, outlet 
extensions to allow filling of tidelands for factory sites, and necessary pipeline replacement 
are main features of the proposed program. 

The San Francisco International Airport is proposing $10,527,000 in improvements, to be 
financed by a new bond issue and a Federal Aid Airport Grant of $4,000,000 which has been applied 
for. Expanding passenger and air-freight traffic, the use of larger planes, probable use of jet 
planes, and other changes in the air traffic pattern, will require additions to runways, improve- 
ments in the Terminal Building, additional loading ramps and concourses, and additional utility 
and auxiliary structures. 

Over $9,000,000 worth of improvements to public health facilities are in the schedules of 
this report. Complete rehabilitation and modernization of Laguna Honda Home and San Francisco Hos- 
pital are going forward rapidly, and will be continued in the current program. Community public 
health centers are also an important feature. 

Approval of bonds for recreation and park improvements in November, 1955> by San Fraincisco's 
voters makes possible needed additions to the park system, as well as long-deferred replacements 
and improvements to facilities in Golden Gate Park, various neighborhood parks and squares, the Zoo- 
logical Gardens, Aquatic Park and the city's golf courses. Completion of the long-range program of 
construction of playgrounds, recreation centers and swimming pools is also made possible. 

John McLaren Park will be developed at an estimated cost of $2,500,000. Park drives and 
parkways leading to the park will be constructed by the Department of Public V/orks out of Motor Vehi 
cle Fuel Fund allocations. 

A new police administration building has been proposed by the Police Department to replace 
existing obsolete quarters in the Hall of Justice, and studies are now under way in the Department 
of Public Works, Bureau of Architecture and in the Department of City Planning to determine sketch 
plans, layout and site for this high-priority project. A bond issue of over $7,000,000 has been 
proposed to finance this buildin?^, a Police Training Academy and several district police stations. 

The new firehouse program is well under way, and new and rebuilt firehouses, meeting pro- 
per standards for earthquake resistance, will soon completely replace inarieouate older stations. 

Construction of public buildings is proposed, amounting to $3,431j905. This includes new 
structures, such as plant and maintenance yard facilities for several departments, additions to 
Log Cabin Ranch, improvements to the City Hall, and funds for architectural protram requirements 
for a new municipal office building and conversion of the City Hall into a courts building. Minor 
improvements and repair items for various city buildings amount to $1, 423 j 105.

THE PUBnC BUILDINGS PROGRAI'I 



Increasing responsibilities have been placed with the CityT s Department of Public Works 
and its Bureau of Architecture and Bureau of Engineering in programming, preparing plans, and 
estimating budget requests for all construction, rehabilitation and repair projects concerning city- 
owned public buildings. The extent of the increased work-load of these bureaus is suggested by the 
length and variety of public buildings projects proposed in the Capital Improvement Program. 

High priority ^^^ill be given, according to present indications, to proposals for a new 
municipal office building of functional design to be placed in the Civic Center area, with con- 
current conversion of the City Hall into a courts building. Programming funds for these projects 
are included in the Capital Improvement Program. The need for a comprehensive site plan for the 
expansion of the Civic Center is becoming increasingly apparent. 

A coordinated grouping of corporation yard projects is developing in the Islais Creek 
area adjacent to the Southeast Sewage Treatment Plant. Already in operation is the Municipal 
Asphalt Plant, and planned for early construction are the proposals in the current Capital Im- 
provement Program for a voting machine warehouse, a Department of Electricity plant maintenance 
yard and headquarters building, and a tank calibration and meter testing s tation for the Sealer 
of Weights and Measures.

PROGRESS ON THE PAP:KS AND RECREATION PROGRAM 

Approval of a bond issue by San Francisco's voters in November of 1955 makes possible 
the $8,885,750 six-year program of development proposed by the Recreation and Park Department in 
this Capital Improvement Program. 

Most significant single project is the development of John McLaren Park, to cost 
$2,500,000. Property acquisition is now \xnder way, and should be completed early in 1957. Devel- 
opment plans for park drives, picnic areas, recreational areas and landscaping will be financed 
by funds to be budgeted during 1956-57. 

The program to overcome San Francisco's deficiency in facilities for swimming and swim- 
ming instruction is advanced in the current Capital Improvement Program. Three swimming pools 
are proposed for construction in 1956-57: Garfield Square, serving the Mission District, Larsen 
Park for the Vifest-of-Twin Peaks area, and a pool in McLaren Park for the Outer Mission community 
area. These will supplement completed swimming pool projects such as the one recently opened at 
Hamilton Recreation Center in the Western Addition, and the projects under way in North Beach and 
at Balboa Park. Proposed improvements to the large outdoor salt-watier Fleischhacker Pool and its 
heating system will make this facility more usable. 

A total of $4,111,650 is proposed for improvements to existing playgrounds and construc- 
tion of new recreation centers and playfields at 21 different locations in all parts of the city. 
Modernization of maintenance and irrigation facilities for Golden Gate Park, neighborhood parks 
and squares, and city-owned golf courses are an important part of the program. Improvements to 
Aquatic Park, and various projects that will eventually form an interior park belt are now taking 
shape as concrete proposals (including parkways leading to John McLaren Park being proposed by 
the City Department of Public Works).

PROGRESS ON THE PLAN FOR LIBRARY FACILITIES 

The following objectives for San Francisco's system of public libraries are a part of 
the Plan for Location of Public Libraries adopted in 1953 as a part of the P^iblic Facilities 
Section of the Master Plan: 



Branch libraries should have a service area range of not more than one mile, 
varying with densities of present and prospective population densities and 
characteristics, physical barriers, and trafficway and transit patterns. 
Large branches serving populations of from 25,000 to 50,000 should be made 
use of in general, except in lov/-density areas limited by physical barriers, 
where small branches to serve 10,000 to 15,000 population may be located. 

Branches should be located where a variety of cfommiinity facilities attracts 
residents of surrounding areas, easily accessible by pedestrian routes, 
trafficways, and transit. Parking for motor vehicles and bicycles should be 
readily available. 

Design should be simple, functional, and in harmony with surroundings, for 
the pleasure and convenience of the public and e conomy and efficiency in 
operation and maintenance 

Recently constructed branch libraries, such as the Parkside and Marina Branch Libraries, 
illustrate these principles, as does the new branch library at the Sunset Community Center, which 
will open in March of 1956. During 1956-57 additional branches will be \mder construction, if 
proposed budgets are approved, for the North Beach, Parkmerced-Stonestown and Bayview branches. 
Five additional branches are proposed for the years 1957-58 through I96I-62, and four others are 
proposed for after 1962.

In the introductory pages of this report, a review of the city's freeway and expressway 
program was given. In addition, over 4?, 000, 000 is proposed for improvements to major thorough- 
fares, parkways, and secondary thoroughfares. Removal of abandonned street-car tracks and re- 
paving of street space occupied by than will account for an additional $512,000, and $921,800 
is proposed for new traffic signals and channalization projects. 

The $13,000,000 Southern Freeway (city section) frori James Lick Memorial (Bayshore) 
Freeway to Tennessee Street and 24th Street will be a major link in the city's fast-traffic 
express highway network when completed. It will connect the projected Southern Crossing and 
the Embarcadero Freeway with James Lick Memorial Freeway, the State's section of the Southern 
Freeway, and the Crosstown Freeway, It will cross the Islais Creek industrial district on a 
viaduct, (Continued)

Major Thoroughfares, Track Removal, Signals and Channelization (Continued) 



The $8,000,000 Crosstown Freeway will follow O'Shaughnessy Canyon on a route bordering 
the Diamond Heights Redevelopment Project, and will connect James Lick and Southern Freeways vrith 
the projected Western Freeway at a point somewhat north of Laguna Honda, as well as with the 
Park-Presidio Freeway approach to the Golden Gate Bridge. 

Fast-traffic access to the Richmond district will be provided by the Geary Expressway, 
to be built at the same time that construction gets under way in the Western Additional Redevel- 
opment Project described below in the Capital Improvement Program schedules. Separate lanes for 
local traffic, through traffic and transit vehicles are features of the proposed design. Inter- 
sections will be limited, and Fillmore Street will be \inderpassed. 

Also related to the Western Addition Redevelopment Project is the Webster- Laguna pro- 
ject involving the widening of sections of Webster and Laguna Streets, and their connection by 
a new diagonal street. A badly-needed north-south crosstown thoroughfare will be accomplished. 

To be under construction before July 1956 is the Market-Portola widening project. This 
project, costing well over $4j000,000, will provide a four-lane divided thoroughfare from St, 
Francis Circle to Market, Seventeenth, and Castro Streets, over Twin Peaks, and will serve heavy 
peak hour traffic now hampered by sharp curves and narrow roadways. Houses have already been 
moved from the new alignment. (Continued)

Major Thoroughfares, Track Removal, Signals and Channalization (Continued) 

Completed in December of 1955 was the Thirteenth Street widening project, which pro- 
vided the right-of-way for the State's Central Freeway viaduct, and involved the paving of the 
surface street. 



Major thorou'jhf are projects in the Capital Improvement Pixsgram schedules helping to 
round out the over-all pattern of the Trafficways Plan include: 

The Geneva Avenue Extension, which will accomplish a direct connection between 
Bayshore Highway and Ocean Avenue, serving the Cow Palace area, the Crocker-Amazon 
district, and the Ocean Avenua and Lakeside Village business districts. 

Mansell Parkway, to be a parkway entrance to John McLaren Park, connecting with 
the proposed San Bruno Parkway and the Bayview Parkway. 

Evans Avenue reconstruction, to improve access to the Hunters Point Navy Yard. 

Widening of Third Street in the heavy industrial area near the Channal. 

Voters' approval of the "Plan E" proposal of the Public Utilities Commission for cur- 
t^lment and consolidation of the city's cable car lines has resulted in the undertaking of 
$623,500 worth of cable car track removal by the City Department of Public VJorks. 

In line with the plan to abandon portions of the California Street line west of Van 
Ness Avenue, and portions of the Hyde-0'Farrell- Jones lines south of California Street, and to 
abandon the Washington and Jackson line west of Hyde Street, these stretches of track are being 
torn up during the current fiscal year, or will be early in 1956-57. 

When track changes are complete, a new line will provide service to Aquatic Park and the 
Maritime Museum over the steep Hyde Street hill, and travel to Powell and Market Streets via 
Washington and Jackson Streets. New track, switches, turntables, cable slot changes, and other new 
track installations will be financed and carried out by the Municipal Railway. 

Other track removal work will eminate unused trolley tracks of the former "F" car line on 
Stockton Street and Colimbus Avenue, the tracks on Chestnut Street, and Fourth Street being already 
removed and repaving completed, (Continued)

Major Thoroughfares, Track Removal, Signals and Channalization (Continued) 

The old 'iylie "birdcage" traffic signals, a distinctive feature of San Francisco life, 
are now almost completely replaced by modem three- light centrally-controlled traffic signals 
installed on a regular program on main arteries, and in heavy-traffic districts such as the 
Hason-Sutter-Van Kess-IIarket area bordering Downtown San Frai.cisco, the South-of-Market area, and 
the Mission District. 

Most one-v/ay street systems, such as Bush and Pine Streets, Oak and Fell Streets, and 
Harrison and Bryant Streets are now equipped with the modernized signals. Timing on these one- 
way streets can be set to favor the greatest possible traffic volumes on the one-way thoroughfares 
with the least delay to through and cross traffic. 

A new innovation is the proposed systan of pavement lane-marker lights to be installed 
in Bay Street, whereby center lanes' traffic direction can be changed to favor the heaviest 
direction of traffic flow during peak hours.

PROGRESS ON THE SEV/ER PROGRAIvI 

Since 1933, a total of over $40,000,000 has been spent to modernize San Francisco's 
anticiue system of sanitary and storm sewers. These had been laid down piecemeal and with little 
regard to trunk collection requirements, heavy rain run-offs in built up areas, or provision for 
future connections for lines serving newly subdivided areas. 

Three sewa^^e treatment plants have been constructed, one in Golden Gate Park to serve 
Richmond and Sunset districts, one on North Point Street near the Einbarcadero for the northeast 
part of the city, and the Southeast Sewage Treatment Plant in the Islais Creek industrial distri 
At present, over 85 per cent of San Francisco's sewage is treated in these three plants. Aouati 
Park is now considered to be safe for. swimming, and foul conditions along the waterfront have 
practically disappeared. 

Storm flooding, which plagued many areas of the city, has been greatly- reduced through 
the program of replacement of obsolete and inadeouate sewer pipes with larger structures capable 
of taking the run-off. For instance, the Lake Street Sewer has reduced former flooding of areas 
between Lake Street and Geary Boulevard. Other construction has relieved flooding near 14th and 
Market Streets, in the Ingleside District, at Sloat Boulevard and 36th Avenue, and in the 
vicinity of Army Street, Church Street, Sixth Street, Brannan Street, 14th Street near Harrison 
Street, 18th Street, La Playa Street at the Beach, and elsewhere. 

The Lake Merced Sewer System takes drainage from the newly-built Stonestown, Parkmerce 
and neighboring residential districts, and prevents pollution of the Lake Merced recreational ar 
and water supply. (Continued). 

The Capital Improvement Program proposals for the completion of the sewer program invc 
the expenditure of $10,558,400, mostly from bond funds approved by the voters in 1954. Largest 
element of the program is $3,780,000 for collection and diversion systems to take remaining un- 
treated sewaf^e to the three treatment plants.

MODERNIZING SAN FRANCISCO'S HEALTH FACILITIES 



Almost $5,000,000 has been spent or is now under contract for the improvement of Laguna 
Honda Home and San Francisco Hospital from bond funds authorized by the city's electorate in 
November 1954. 

At San Francisco Hospital, main ward kitchens have been completely modernized, access 
roads for firefighting have been completed, fire sprinkler systems have been installed in 
storage areas, and the surgical suite has been modernized. 

Projects for the cvirrent year at the hospital include modernization of ward building 
elevators, construction of exterior stairs for safer evacuation of bed patients in the event 
of fire or disaster, connecting corridors at upper floor levels for easier communication be- 
between ward buildings, and modernization of the Maternity Ward. Office service and social 
seiTTice function areas have been relocated and modernized. 

At Laguna Honda Home, work under way (or to be under contract in the spring of 1956) 
includes projects totaling more than $3,000,000. Largest single item is the $1,377,000 
reconstruction of the Old Infirmary into an ambulatory patients' ward. This will make possible 
the conversion of the existing ambulatory wards into hospital wards to care for chronically ill 
residents of Laguna Honda Home who now must be cared for at San Francisco Hospital. 

Modernization of kitchen, laundry, garbage disposal, and other service facilities is 
under way, and provision for connecting corridors between buildings for easier intercommunica- 
tion between wards at upper floor levels is an important feature of planned construction.

Modernizing San Francisco's Health Facilities (Continued) 

Health Department facilities located throughout the city, such a s emergency hospitals 
and community health centers appear in the Capital Improvement Program to the extent of 
$921,400 for the six-year period. 

A new concrete structure to replace the obsolete Park Emergency Hospital is proposed, 
along with improvements to Harbor and Alemany Snergency Hospitals. Community health centers 
are proposed to serve the Mission, Bayshore, Uestem Addition, South-of-1'arket, Marina and 
Richmond districts. As is the case with the existing health center at the Sunset Community 
Center, these public health centers would provide public health services including health educa- 
tion, family services in maternity cases, infant care, and school children's problems, measures 
for control of communicable diseases, child welfare programs, dental services, and mental 
hygiene consultation.

THE CITY'S PROGRAl-1 OF STREET LIGHTING CONSTRUCTION 

In keeping with Charter provisions, the Bureau of Light, Heat, and Power has gradually 
been acquiring ownership of street lights throughout the city. Various arterials in need of new 
lighting installations have been chosen for new construction projects in conformity with a long- 
range plan, and lights previously erected by the Pacific Gas and Electric Company and operated 
under contract with the city are replaced. 

During 1954-55, street lighting construction costing $80,641 was completed, and projects 
completed, under way, or programmed for construction during 1955-56 amounted to $153,745. 

Capital Improvement Program projects proposed for 1956-57 would cost $955,850, and they 
include new street lighting for the Diamond Heights and Western Additional redevelopment project 
areas. The program also includes projected installation of new facilities on Geary Boulevsrd, 
California Street, Gough Street, Turk Street, KcCoppin Street and Mission Street. Reconstruction 
of existing installations is proposed for Market Street from Valencia Street to Castro Street, 
on Bayshore Boulevard, Junipero Serra Boulevard, Sloat Boulevard, and Nineteenth Avenue. 

Proposed for the five-year period from 1957-58 through 1961-62 is construction amounting 
to $2,134,000, including a "Path-of-Gold" for lower Market Street, new lighting for the downtown 
"Triangle" district, lighting for Lake Merced Boulevard circling Lake Merced, and on various major 
thoroughfares. Lights for park drives in Golden Gate Park are also planned.

SAN FRANCISCO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT : A PRO^RAI'I FOR E;<PANSI0N 

Since the new domestic and international air t erminal building and related improvements 
were dedicated and placed in service in September, 1954j the growth of air traffic has exceeded 
the most optimistic projections. During the past fiscal year, air passenger t raffic increased 
20 per cent with 2,879,366 passengers using the airport. Airmail volumes are up 12.6 per cent, 
and air express and air freight have increased by 22.5 per cent. 

These increases are greater than the traffic growth anticipated when the 1949 Airport 
Bonds were approved. by San Francisco's voters. Airport revenue during 1954-55 reached a figure 
of $2,512,666, or $506,393 more than was estimated when the budget for the airport was prepared. 
During that period, a net profit of $111,264 was realized by the airport.

San Francisco International Airport: A Program for Expansion (Continued) 

In the fall of 1955, scheduled air carriers annoiinced their plans to invest more than a 
quarter of a billion dollars in jet aircraft to supplement existing equipment. Several additional 
air carriers have recently been granted authority to operate from San Francisco via many new 
routes. Additional international air carriers will probably also b e authorized in the near future, 
and will require acccsmnodations at the airport. 

To meet these needs, the Public Utilities Commission is proposing more than $10,000,000 
in improvements to the airport runways, taxiways, terminal building, passenger loading concourses, 
and auxiliaiy and utility structures and installations. A proposed new bond issue v/ould finance 
$5,915,500 of the expense involved, and a Federal Aid Airport Grant has been applied for to fin- 
ance $4,349,500 of the costs. 

During 1954-55, $3,320,739 (mostly from 1949 Airport Bond Funds) was spent in completion 
of passenger loading concourse structures, loading aprons, airport roads, outside lighting, land- 
scaping, and an Air Mail and .Cargo Building. 

Under way during 1955-56 are $1,351,655 worth of projects, including a sewaf^e treatment 
plant, apron and taxiway construction, and additions and betterments to the Terminal Building. 

In the proposed Capital Improvement Program for the airport, $3,680,500 would be sched- 
uled for landing field improvements, including runway extensions, enlargement of warm-up pads at 
runway ends, taxiways and taxiway turnouts. In the Terminal Building, $1,846,000 is proposed for 
such improvements as baggage conveyors, escalators, rest room enlargements, improvements in 
ticket counter space, and additions to the present structure. Concourse and apron improvements 
would cost $2,320,000. Other projects include additional f acilities for air mail and air cargo 
handling, aprons for cargo planes, service structures for transient aircraft, fire fighting 
equipment, and purchase of additional land and avigation rights.

PROPOSED PROGRAM OF INVESTMENT IN THE CITY'S TRANSIT SYSTEM 

A major project completed by the San Francisco Municipal Railway during 1954-55 was 
the rehabilitation and reconstruction of the motor bus shops at 24th and Utah Streets, near 
San Francisco Hospital. This structure was an old carhouse inherited from the Market Street 
Railway when that property was purchased by the City in 1944. It has been converted into a 
modem, functional structure. 

Projects completed, underway, or to be started during the current fiscal year, 1955-56, 
amount to $1,123,370 worth of work. Over $400,000 is being spent on rehabilitation of the 
Washington-Mason cable car power house and carhouse as part of the "Plan E" cable car consolida- 
tion program. Consolidated cable car lines include the California Street cable car line from 
Market Street to Van Ness Avenue, and a new Hyde Street line from Aquatic Park to Powell and 
Market Street via Hyde, Washington and Jackson, and Powell Streets. A new turntable is being 
built at Hyde and Beach Streets, and a total of about $450,000 is being spent on cable car track 
changeso 

A new bond issue is proposed by the Municipal Railway, to amount to $7,503,850, mostly 
for expenditure after 1957-58. Buildings and structures would account for $3,615,000 of this, 
major projects being the reconstruction of the Elkton car shops at Ocean and San Jose Avenues, 
and rehabilitation of the Geneva carhouse at Geneva and San Jose Avenues. Eleven new electrical 
substations are also included in this program, for better distribution of electrical power to 
the street car and trolley bus wire system. 

The proposed $3,186,000 program of improvements to the trolley wire system involves 
conversion of several motor bus lines to trolley bus operation, for cheaper per-mile operating 
costs, and for easier climbing of steep hills when coaches carry heavy passenger loads. The 
Sacramento Street line (#55), an extension of th^ Castro Street trolley bus line (#8),' and 
an extension of the Jackson Street trolley bus line (#3) are in this category. 

Over $1,000,000 is proposed for the conversion of the Geary Street car lines ("B" and "C") 
to trolley coach operation, including trolley wiring work and removal of tracks. This is proposed 
for the period after July 1, 1957. Plans for the Geary Expressway would allow a space for transit in 
special lanes, either car tracks or special lanes for trolley buses. Final decisions as to conver- 
sion of the Geary Street lines, as well as conversion of the Church Street car line ("J") to trolley 
bus operation, may be based on results of the current survey now under way as to how local rapid 
transit plans could be integrated with proposed regional interurban rapid transit plans. If a 
"street-car subway"(such as are in operation in Boston, Newark, and Philadelphia) were favored, re- 
tention of the car lines might be indicated. If a separate mulitple-unit rapid transit train system 
were recommended, retention of the car tracks would be of little importance.

FUTURE SAN FRAICISCO SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION 

Only three new school construction projects are listed in the Capital Improvement Pro- 
gram. Two of these (Raphael Weill Elementary School Addition and Diamond Heights Elementary 
School) are related to urban redevelopment projects. Total construction proposed amounts to 
$3,605,000. 

During 1954-55j construction completed amounted to $5>368,267, including two schools 
(Mark Twain Elementary School and Giannini Junior High School) at the Sunset Community Center. 
Other completed projects included Jedidiah Smith Elementary School, Starr King Elementary 
School, Fremont Elementary School, and Hillcrest Elementary School Addition. 

In 1955-56, projects representing a cost of $10,653} 521 have been completed or are under 
construction. A cafetarla building for City College, and the McLaren Elementary School on Sunny- 
dale Avenue were completed. Herbert Hoover Junior High School at lAth Avenue and Santiago Street 
opened its doors for the spring term in January, 1956. Under construction are Patrick Henry Elemen 
tary School, Frederick Burk Elementary School, Lather Burbank Junior High School, and Commodore 
Stockton Elementary School Addition. 

School authorities report that a program of additional school construction is under con- 
sideration, and that an additional bond issue may be submitted to the voters in November, 1956. 
These funds would finance construction of additional high school facilities to accommodate the 
"post war baby crop" which should reach high school age by 1959 or I960, and ;*iich is now on the 
threshhold of entering the city's junior high schools. 

The number of projects, and the total funds to b e asked for, have not yet been finally 
determined, although school population studies and planning analyses have been under way for 
some time by the staff of the Board of Education.

THE OFF-STREET PARKING CONSTRUCTION PROGRAM 

The Parking Authority's program for construction of off-street parking tenninals pro- 
posed for the Capital Improvement Program would cost in the neighborhood of $16,000,000 
($9,840,000 to be put up by garage lessees) and would add a total of 4,787 parking stalls to 
the supply serving Downtown and the Civic Center. 

Two projects, the Ellis-O'Farrell Garage and the Fifth and Howard Garage, which were in 
the Capital' Improvement Program last year, are now being undertaken entirely as private enterprise 
projects with no help from the city. They should add about 1,200 off-street parking stalls to 
the Downtown supply. 

The Fifth and Mssion Garage is currently being undertaken as a part of the Parking 
Authority program, and will involve expenditure of $2,000,000 of the 1947 Off -Street Parking 
Bond funds. The balance of the $3,440,000 project cost will b e assigned by the lessees, a firm 
organized by a group of merchants located near Fifth and Market Streets. 

The Market-Mission Garat^e will provide 1,270 stalls in a seven-story ramp garage withir 
easy walking distance, via a pedestrian v;alkway of the Grant Avenue shopping area. Also 
immediately adjacent to the shopping district is the Sutter-Stockton Garage, which will provide 
1,400 stalls on the site of the existing Department of Public ifelfare building at 585 Bush 
Street. Parking a block and a half south of Market Street for 500 cars will be made possible 
by the Minnatoma Parking Plaza, a parking lot betv;een Third, Fourth, Minna and Katoma Streets, 
which can be the site for future gara^^e construction. 

A proposed Civic Center Plaza underground garage would provide space for 1,047 park- 
ing stalls on three levels, for fulfilment of parking needs for the new buildings \mder con- 
struction and being discussed for location in the Civic Center area (new State office building, 
new Federal office building^ municipal office building). It will b e coordinated in design with 
the \inderground exhibit hall to be constructed in the spring of 1956.

RE DEVIiOPM EN T AGENCY 



STATUS OF SAN FRANCISCO'S PROGRAM FOR URBAN REDEVELOPMENT 

Five areas within San Francisco have been declared redevelopment project areas: Western 
Addition, Diamond Heights, South-of-Market, Etabarcadero-Lower Market Street (the existing wholesale 
produce market area) and South Basin (site of the proposed new wholesale produce market and whole- 
St-ile food center). 

Diamond Heights Redevelopnent Project 

Approval of an urban renewal capital grant and loan for the Diamond Heights project by 
the Federal Government's Urban Renewal Administration was announced on January 18, 1956. The grant 
is for $915,988, and the loan amounts to $6,790,882, and will finance property acquisition expected 
to cost around $1,786,500, as well as the construction of streets and utilities to serve the area, 
which should cost about $3,538,920. 

The Federal loan will be repaid bj; proceeds from resale of the redeveloped property, ex- 
pected to bring in $5,875,894, supplemented by proceeds from the Federal grant. Community facili- 
ties, listed on the opposite page, and including a firehouse, branch library, recreation facilities 
and schools, will be the city's contribution to the redevelopment project, which are known as "local 
non-cash grants-in-aid". 

The Redevelopment Agency is presently negotiating with property owners who wish to sign 
agreements to participate in the redevelopaent operation. According to the present schedule, prop- 
erty acquisition will begin in February 1956. Grading operations, streets and utilities construc- 
tion, site preparations and other operations should make the land available for resale at public 
bid to individuals, builders or institutional owners by July, 1957. 

Western Addition Redevelopment Project 

The Final Redevelopment Plan for the Western Addition Redevelopment Project is now being 
reviewed by the Urban Renewal Administration in the Federal Government's Housing and Home Finance 
Agency. Approval is anticipated early in 1956. Land acquisition operations should be under way by 
July 1956. 

A majority of the structures in this 28-block area extending from Franklin Street to St. 
Joseph's Avenue, and from Eddy Street to Post Street, will be demolished to provide sites for new 
apartments, flats, homes, shopping centers and professional-administrative-technical centers. Re- 
location of residents of structures to be removed must be accomplished by the Redevelopment Agency. 
It is expected to cost $13,789,942 to obtain the land for the project, which, together with site 
improvements will be financed by a Federal capital grant of $7,336,079 and proceeds from the sale 

of new sites, expected to be $9,893,127. 

Private investment in 2,800 new dwelling 
units in the project area will cost at least 
$30,000,000 providing accommodations for about 
6,500 persons. The Geary Expressway, described 
below in the Trafficways schedule of the Capital 
Improvement Program, forms the backbone of the 
project and is its central feature. 

South-of-Market Redevelopment Area 

On December 27, 1955, the Board of Supervi- 
sors enlarged this area by the addition of a four- 
block area bounded by Third, Mission, Fifth and 
Folsom Streets to make a total area of 23 blocks 
of irregular shape bounded by Mission, Brannan, 
Second and Ninth Streets. Predominantly industrial 
in character, this area has pockets of blighted 
housing, mostly fronting on alleys, whose proximity 
to industrial plants reduces the possibility of

REDEVELOPMENT IN SAN FRANCISCO 




Most ambitious of the projects proposed for this is that being put forward by Webb and 
Knapp, a real estate investment corporation of New York, for the development of six blocks bounded 
by Harrison, Third, Mission, and Fifth Streets for a comprehensive development to include multi- 
level and londerground garages, shopping centers, hotels, office buildings and convention and ex- 
hibit facilities. In other parts of this redevelopment area, proposals for truck terminals and ex- 
pansions of industrial plant facilities have been discussed, but so far definite project plans have 
not yet materialized. 

Embarcadero-Lower Market Street Redevelopment Area 

In January, 1956, the Board of Supervisors appropi'iated $25,000 to be expended by the De- 
partment of City Planning for an economic analysis of the existins; wholesale produce area" when the 
market is moved to the proposed new site in South Basin. Declared a redevelopment area Dy the Board 
of Supervisors in February 1955, this 24-block area will provide approximately 55 acres for new of- 
fice buildings, apartments, and for institutional, hotel, professional-engineering or other new uses 
for this potentially valuable land as indicsted; from the. study being undertaken. 

South Basin Redevelopment Project Area 

On December 5, 1955, the Tentative Plan for the South Bpsin Redevelopment Project was ap- 
proved by the Board of Supervisors, to provide over 50 acres in a single site for a new location for 
the San Francisco tifholesale Produce Market. The proposed site, southwest of Hunters Point Naval 
Shipyard, and now occupied by temporary war housing, is bounded by Jennings and Havres Streets, and 
Thomas and Carroll Avenues. Considerable aid on a proposed layout for new market fccilities was 
given the city by the U. S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Marketing Service.

PROGRESS IN PUBUC HOUSING CONSTRUCTION 

The post-war construction program of the Housing Authority of the City and County of 
San Francisco for provision of additional low-income public housing is now well under way. In 
new buildings in the Potrero Annex Housing Project on Potrero Hill, in the Alemany Housing Project 
on the north side of Alemany Boulevard near the Fanners' Market, and in the Bemal Housing Project 
at Army, Folsom and Harrison Streets, accommodations for 542 families have been completed and 
occupied. 

In 1955-56, $16,647,167 in constinction costs was involved in projects completed and 
under way. Tenants are already b eginning to move into the new Western Addition Housing Project, 
located on the borders of the Western Addition Redevelopment Project area. Renamed the Yerba 
Buena Housing Project, with structures on two sites, will accommodate 608 families in multi-story 
apartments. In the spring of 1956, two other projects accommodating 576 families will be completed 
in the Hunters Point area at Hunters View and Harbor Slope. 

The Capital Improvement Program projects submitted include a project in the Double Rock 
area, near South Basin, and an annex to the Western Addition projects, primarily designed for older 
persons, and an annex and addition to the Ping Yuen project in Chinatown.

The City Planning Commission takes pleasiire in submitting herewith the 
annual Capital Improvement Program in compliance with Section 69.1 of the Charter. 

Capital improvement projects are reported departmentally in the oirder | 

established by the operating department. Public bLiilding projects submitted ty I 

the Department of Public Works are grouped by buildings with those projects not ' 

affecting the Master Plan segregated. , 

To indicate the relationship between program and accomplishment as well 
as to provide continuity from year to year, construction work completed in the 
previous fiscal year and in progress during the current fiscal year is reported. 

All projects proposed for inclusion in the budget for the ensuing fiscal 
year 1957-58 have been reviewed by the City Planning Commission for conformity 
with the Master Plan and recommendations as to co-ordination or timing are included 
where necessary. 

Projects proposed for the five subsequent years, 1958-59 through 1962-63 
are shown to present a general long-range pictiire of proposed development. These 
projects are studied by our staff for Master Plan conformity and, where conflicts 
are forseen, the submitting department is advised so that such conflicts may be 
resolved before the proposal is submitted as a first year project for review by 
the City Planning Commission. 

The Department of City Planning wishes to express its appreciation to all 
city officials and departments participating in this program, for their assistance 
and co-operation in the preparation of this report. 

Respectfully submitted.

THE RELATION OF THE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM 
TO THE MASTER PLAN 



The Master Plan of San Francisco is a guide to the improvement 
and orderly development of the city, and the Capital Improve- 
ment Program is one means of accomplishing the purposes of this 
plan. 

There are three major sections of the Master Plan; Land Use, 
Transportation and Public Facilities. The City-wide Land Use 
Plan is the general pattern for public and private development 
in the city. It shows the proposed general distribution and the 
general location and extent of housing, business, industry, rec- 
reation, education," and other categories of public and private 
uses of land, and recommended standards of population density 
and building intensity. The Transportation Section deals with 
the general location, character and extent of existing and pro- 
posed transportation routes, terminals, public ways and other 
circulation featxires of the Master Plan. The Public Facilities 
Section of the plan deals exclusively with the location of public 
grounds and structures of a relatively permanent nature. 

These three sections of the Master Plan are used as criteria in 
reviewing the capital improvement projects submitted to the 
Department of City Planning. It is expressly stated in the 
Charter that where proposed projects do not conform to the Master 
Plan, it shall be the duty of the Department of City Planning to 
confer with the department concerned in an endeavor to eliminate 
the conflict. In the nine years in which this annual report has 
been issued, the value of the program has become more generally 
apparent and now in most instances city projects of any magnitude 
are discussed at a staff level and are correlated with the Master 
Plan prior to submission in the Capital Improvement Program. 
This procedure and final review of all first year projects ty 
the City Planning Commission have helped to avoid conflicts bet- 
ween departmental programs as well as to insure that all recommend- 
ed projects will further the purposes of the Master Plan. 

This process of correlating proposed capital improvements with 
the Master Plan is illustrated in the formulation of the Public 
Facilities Section of the Master Plan. This section is a series 
of maps and accompanying texts each dealing with a specific fac- 
ility and replacing or amending pertinent material in the Master 
Plan adopted in 19^5- The maps show the general recommended 
locations, existing and proposed, of the subject facility and the 
texts describe the objectives, principles and standards which are 
basic and integral parts of the plan.

These plans are always made in close collaboration with the par- 
ticular department. A major purpose of the plans is to assist 
the public service departments in drawing up development programs 
which will do the greates* good for the city as a whole, as well 
as meeting the standards and requirements of the operating de- 
partments. The Department of City Planning with its comprehen- 
sive view of the entire city and the physical needs of the comm- 
unity brings perspective to the problems and pressures of daily 
operation. 

The Firehouse Location Plan, the map of which appears on the 
opposite page, was the first of this series to be adopted. This 
plan was the subject of a special technical study made by the 
Department of City Planning at the request of, and in co-opera- 
tion with the Fire Department, prior to submittal of a firehouse 
building bond issue to the electorate in 1952. The plan was used 
to establish a long range construction and reconstruction program 
which is the basis for the Fire Department ' s annual building pro- 
gram and capital improvement budget. Thus the capital improvement- 
schedule submitted by the Fire Department explicitly reflects the 
Master Plan. 

The Library Location Plan adopted in 1953 is the basis for the loc- 
ation of branch libraries proposed in the Library Department's 
capital improvement program. A report on a plan for the location 
of public health centers has been submitted to the Health Depart- 
ment , and a report on a long-range plan for school location is 
under study. 

The Recreation Area and Park Location Plan, adopted on November 
29. 1956 by- the City Planning Commission, is the most recent add- 
ition to the Public Facilities Section of the Master Plan. A re- 
port on this plan, undertaken by the Department of City Planning 
at the request of the General Manager of the Recreation and Park 
Departments, was issued in the spring of 195'+- In the two years 
and a half that intervened between the report and the adopted 
plan, the report was carefully studied by the Recreation and Park 
Commission, interested public officials, citizen groups and private 
individuals and the recommended plan was refined to the acceptable 
and realistic solution illustrated here. 



THE PROPOSED CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM 



A total of $ 270,669,5^1 has been proposed for capital improvement expend- 
itures by the various departments, boards and agencies of the City and 
County of San Francisco for the six year period beginning July 1, 195?. 
Proposed expenditures for the first fiscal year 1957-58 amount to 
$ 59,712,135 with $ 210,957.^06 scheduled for the five subsequent years. 
In addition to the above total, various departments contemplate spending 
$ 64,296,600 after June I963 under their respective long-range planning 
programs. In the first year program approximately 60 per cent of the 
expenditures is to be financed from approved bond issues, 25 per cent from 
prior budget appropriations, departmental revenues and state and federal 
aid, 11 per cent from the annual budget, and 4 per cent from proposed 
bond issues. 

Having the approval of the San Francisco Electorate in November 1956 for 
the issue of 52 million dollars in bonds, the San Francisco International 
Airport and Unified School District can now proceed with their respective 
expansion programs. The San Francisco Airport will use its bond funds for 
the extension and rehabilitation of existing runways ; construction of new 
concourses, a secondary terminal, heliport, firehouse, additional parking 
area and roads, and repairs and improvements to existing facilities. The 
entire program will cost $ 25,000,000 and will extend over a ten year per- 
iod with all but $ 4,146,000 to be spent or encumbered during the coming 
six fiscal years. 

To meet the need for additional school facilities, the Board of Education 
proposes to use $ 10,600,000 of its approved 27 million dollar bond issue 
for the construction of new buildings and $ 11,810,000 for additions to 
and rehabilitation of existing buildings over the coming six year period. 
Contingencies and equipment will amount to $ 3.380,000 and the remaining 
$ 1,210,000 will cover two additional construction projects which have 
been temporarily held in abeyance pending further study. 

The Bureau of Architecture has requested $ 6,000 for preliminary plans, 
studies and investigations to establish cost estimates to be used for a 
possible bond issue for the complete renovation and remodeling of the 
Civic Auditorium. Possibilities to be explored are the excavation of the 
basement, making the connecting area to the new exhibit hall wider, use of 
escalators and re-planning of all space above the main floor. 

With the approval of the June 1956 Hall of Justice bond issue, the Police 
Department plans on consolidating their administrative offices and Police 
Training Acadeiry in the new Hall of Justice building. The other occupants 
of the new $ 19,475,000 building will be eleven Criminal and Traffic Courts, 
District Attorney, Adult Probation, Public Defender, County Clerk, Coroner 
and Sheriff. 

(Continued) 



The Hetch Hetchy Power and Water Supply System proposed project expend- 
itxires of $ 136,818,000 represent a little over one-third of the total 
Capital Improvement Program for the six year period and beyond. The con- 
struction of dams, pipe lines and power tunnels comprised the major port- 
ion of this figure. Of the total proposed $ ^0,210,000 will be expended 
after June 1963- 

The San Francisco Water Department's estimate of $ '+2,017,125 indicates 
an expenditxire of $ 31.552,750 for water supply projects and $ 10,4-94,375 
for water distribution projects. 

The fire department plans the construction of three new firehouses for 
$ 720,000 in fiscal year 1957-58 and proposes five additional houses at 
$ 1,088,000 in the subsequent five years to replace existing obsolete sta- 
tions and provide fire-fighting service in newly developed residential 
areas. An additional $ 300,000 is scheduled for the reconstruction of 
eleven other stations over the six year period 

The Department of Public Health has an $ 8,440,655 proposed program of 
which $ 3,195,980 is planned for the first fiscal year. The San Francisco 
Hospital and Laguna Honda Home are carrying out their long-range programs 
of rehabilitation under their respective 195^ bond issues. The provision 
of six additional health centers at various locations throughout the city 
are planned through $ 488,000 in State Health Funds and $ 240,000 in ann- 
ual budget requests. 

The Public Library Commission's program of $ 1,841,900 is to be financed 
entirely out of prior years' budgets and proposed annual budget requests 
with $ 366,600 to be expended after J\ine 1963. Eighty- five per cent of 
this total is to be spent for new structures to replace inadequate branch 
libraries, most of which are located in rented quarters. The remaining 
amount is for alterations to the main library and the old North Beach branch. 

The Department of Public Works estimates a $ 3.690,155 expenditure for con- 
struction, rehabilitation, repairs and additions to public buildings dur- 
ing the fiscal year 1957-58. 

Various departments, lacking the necessary funds to fulfill their planned 
programs propose to finance them by the issuance of $ 140,667.148 worth of 
new bonds. The Public Utilities Commission contemplates $ 127.231,148 of 
new bonds for its water, Hetch Hetchy and Municipal Railway departments, 
while the Department of Public Works plans on financing a portion of their 
trafficway and sewer programs by $ 11,761,000 in new bonds. Steinhart Aq\iar- 
ium's whole program is based on $ 1,100,000 in proposed bond issues for the 
complete rehabilitation of its tanks, p\imps and related equipment. In order 
to provide two neighborhood playgrounds and recreation facilities in the Dia- 
mond Heights Redevelopment area the Recreation and Park Department proposes 
$ 575.000 in new bonds.

STATUS OF STATE AND CITY FREEWAY AND EXPRESS'.VAY PROGRAMS IN SAN FRANCISCO 



Twenty-eight of the thirty-eight miles of freeways and expressways routes 
in San Francisco are included within the State Highway System. These 
State routes are estimated to cost $ 328,600,000 of which $ 131,500,000 
is for land acquisition. To date $ 52,650,000 has been spent on the con- 
struction of the James Lick Memorial (Bayshore) Freeway and a portion of 
the Central Freeway. It is expected that the one mile segment of the 
James Lick Memorial Freeway, extending southward from Third Street and 
Hester Avenue to the County Line, will be opened in early 1957 thus com- 
pleting the San Francisco section of this main arterial highway. 

A portion of the Central Freeway from the Division Street interchange to 
South Van Ness Avenue and Mission Street has been completed and is open 
to public use. Extension of this freeway across Market Street to T\irk 
Street is now financed and actual construction is scheduled to commence 
in early 1957. 

The major project proposed for the coming fiscal year is construction of 
a portion of the Embarcadero Freeway, from the San Francisco-Oakland Bay 
Bridge to Broadway. One unit already nearing completion is the connecting 
link between the elevated Bayshore Freeway and the surface level at Mission 
and Beale Streets. With the opening of this connection there will be di- 
rect freeway service to the Financial District. 

Right-of-way acquisition is now underway along the proposed route of the 
Southern Freeway and construction of a portion of the Golden Gate Freeway 
is now financed from Lyon Street to the junction of Park-Presidio and the 
Golden Gate Bridge approach. 

In addition to the proposed expenditures of the State Division of High- 
ways, the San Francisco Department of Public Works has proposed a 
$ 37.083,000 program for implementing the remaining planned ten miles of 
freeways and expressways. Over the ensuing six year period it is con- 
templated that $ 25,953,000 of this total will be spent or encumbered 
for studies , plans , land acquisition and construction. The cost of ac- 
quiring the necessary right-of-way for the city' s ultimate freeway and 
expressway system is estimated to be $ 9,925,000.

Construction of the two off-street parking facilities proposed for the first year program 
will be financed by $ 2,000,000 from the 19^7 Off-Street Parking Bond and $ 6,629,000 ty private 
interests. 

The Civic Center xinderground garage and the Fifth & Mission garage are scheduled to be under 
construction before the end of this fiscal year and should be available for public use sometime 
during the 1957-58 fiscal year. These two projects will provide an additional 2,^+00 off-street 
parking stalls to the Downtown and Civic Center areas. 

The Parking Authority is in the process of developing a second phase enlarged off-street 
parking program which is intended to serve all categories of uses, short term as well as long 
term, and all sections of the city. 



REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY 



San Francisco has two projects, Diamond Heights and Western Addition, c\irrently being 
carried forward under the auspices of the Federal Housing Act of 19^+9 • These projects involve the 
acquisition of most of the land within the project area, clearance and improvement of the land and 
its resale to private developers for development in accordance with a plan for the area. The pre- 
sent status and schedule for the two projects are as follows: 

Diamond Heights 

A contract for Loan and Grant between the Redevelopment Agency and the Housing and Home 
Finance Agency of the Federal Government was executed beginning March 1, 1956. Since that time a 
second appraisal has been completed and as of January 1, 1957 50/5 of the land will have been acqui- 
red. It is anticipated that by July 1957 all of the land will be acquired. Site improvement work 
will then begin and should be completed approximately March 1, 1959. Disposition of the land is 
estimated to be completed by January 1, I960. 

Western Addition 

The Redevelopment Plan for the Western Addition Project was approved by the Board of 
Supervisors on June 2, 1956 and a Loan and Grant Contract between the Housing and Home Finance 
Agency and the Redevelopment Agency was approved on December 24, 1956. Since the execution of this 
contract an appraisal of the land in the project area has been started and land acquisition will 
probably begin around July 1, 1957 •

Urban Renewal 

Since the passing of the Housing Act of 195^. with its concept of "Urban Renewal" and 
its enlarged provisions for the eradication of slums and blight several new projects have been 
contemplated. These include projects in the Embarcadero-Lower Market Area (old Produce Market), 
South of Market and the Western Addition (a new project). The South Basin project for the reloca- 
tion of the produce market is not a Federally financed project and as such does not come under 
the requirements of the Federal program. 

To advance this concept an Inter Agency Committee of various city department heads is 
being created to co-ordinate code inspection and enforcement and to unify and guide the appro- 
priate activities of the responsible departments and agencies in connection with the city's 
program for Urban Ptenewal. 

In order that Federal aids may be secured a municipality must have a "Workable Program" , 
subject to yearly recertification. A "Workable Program" is in effect the master plan of a 
municipality for the progressive elimination and prevention of slums and blight and the establish- 
ment and preservation of well-planned residential communities. San Francisco submitted and 
received certification of its "Workable Program" on October 25. 1955- It is now due for recert- 
ification. 

On April 5. 1955 > the Redevelopment Agency voted to prepare an application for planning 
advances and a capital grant reservation for a new project in the Western Addition Redevelopment 
Area, to include the sixty blocks north of the present project. Due to lack of funds this app- 
lication has not yet been prepared. However, it is anticipated that funds will soon be available. 
It is contemplated that this new project will be subject to rehabilitation and conservation as well 
as clearance. It may be possible in the near future, under a new provision in the Housing Act of 
1956, to apply for a planning advance to make "General Neighborhood Renewal Plans" ( a planned 
sequence of interrelated projects by stages) for all the remaining area of the Western Addition 
Redevelopment Area. 

Another new feature of the Housing Act of 195^+ which will make possible a project in the 
South of Market Redevelopment Area and for which preparatory work is now being done, permits 
planning advances and loans and grants for projects in areas containing a substantial number of 
slum and blighted dwellings (rather than predominantly residential), that are not to be redevelop- 
ed for predominantly residential uses, projects of this type being limited to 10^^ of the total 
capital grants authorized for the use of the state. Substantial is defined to mean 20j2 of the 
net ground area devoted to residential uses or 20;? of the total floor space in the area so used. 

Subsequent upon the declaration by the Board of Supervisors of twenty-eight blocks includ- 
ing and surrounding the old produce market as Redevelopment Area E, the Embarcadero-Lower Market 
Redevelopment Area, in February 21, 1955 • and the evidence of interest in the area ty several 
prominent real estate developers, the Board also appropriated $ 25,000 to make an economic and 
planning study of the area, which study has since been made under the direction of the Department 
of City Planning. Since that time several interested local citizens have donated $ 51|250 to be 
used to make a thorough architectural and economic analysis of the area to be used as a basis for 
the preliminary and tentative plans (under the California Redevelopment law). This was for the 
purpose of having a measure for the area against which to judge the development plans of prospect- 
ive developers. A contract for this work has been signed with the architectural firm of Skidmore, 
Owings and Merrill. In order that credit for this work be reserved in the form of non-cash local 
grants-in-aid in the event that it is found desirable to make the area predominantly residential, 
thus making available the use of Federal financial aids, a Letter to Proceed, authorizing this 
expenditure and reserving capital grant funds, has been approved by the Housing and Home Finance 
Agency. Also an application for advance planning funds to the Housing and Home Finance Agency has 
been prepared by the Redevelopment Agency and submitted to the Board of Supervisors for approval. 
The Board has deferred action on it until the results of the aforementioned architectural study 
have been made available.
